Financial Issues

When a relationship breaks down one of the most difficult and contentious issues to come to terms with is the financial arrangements and how the family are going to be provided for now and in the future.

Within any separation we would always advise the parties to think carefully about the financial arrangements so that we can ensure that they are practical, sustainable and where possible achieve what is needed particularly where children are involved.

The area of financial provision upon the breakdown of the marriage can be quite complex, it can involve properties, business assets, pensions and many other considerations so it is vital that any individual going through the breakdown of a marriage seeks competent and independent legal advice to protect themselves and their family for the future.

At Morecrofts, our specialist Family Finance Team have a proven track record in securing appropriate financial provision for it’s clients and their families.

We will guide you through the processes we will keep you informed at all stages and consider in conjunction with you all of the options available to include mediation, collaboration, negotiation or ultimately court proceedings. Together we will achieve the best possible outcome for you and your family.

We understand how worrying legal costs can be so have a range of payment options available to suit your budget and needs. We offer fixed fee packages alongside our traditional fee system and we work with you to decide which is best for you and your family. We will assess whether you are eligible for legal aid and, as we have a contract with the Legal Aid Agency, we can grant legal aid immediately if necessary.
